It is a story of devotion and human understanding set against a background of political turmoil which continues today.
The Lady is also the story of the peaceful quest of the woman who is at the core of Burma's democracy movement.

  1. Mary Reibey (1777–1855), who arrived in Australia as a convict in 1792 and become a successful shipping magnate and philanthropist.

  2. My Mum, born during WW1, a teenager during the Depression never had much. Her father suicided,unable to bear pain of stomach cancer. Her Protestant family wouldn't attend her Catholic wedding. Lost a brother in Changi during WW2 and had another murdered in 1964 while a sister died from cough medicine addiction. She was married and widowed 3 times, leaving her with a total of 8 small kids to raise alone. She lost my oldest sister to suicide in 1978 while I became an alcoholic - both a result of terror we faced by an elder step-brother continually trying to break into our house to rape my older sisters. Mum protected us, provided for us and raised us all to be respectful adults - very much by herself and very little money. She inspired us all to never give up, care for others and always be true.
